When there is a sale of appliances in the supermarket I always check the prices. Sometimes we do not need the appliance but it is good to buy for sooner or later we might be needing it. Like the electric fan that was on sale at 50% discount. I grabbed one and kept it in the stock room. After a month one old electric fan conked out.
It is not bad to buy something that is on sale that you do not need at the moment. But be sure that it will be used sooner or later. That is the reason why I buy an extra garden hose for it breaks after 3 or 4 months.
Do you buy appliance on discount?
